In summary, if you can understand this book it is probably because you have learned the material from a more digestible source, such as John Lee’s excellent Smooth Manifolds, Tu’s Introduction to Manifolds or Bott and Tu’s Differential Forms and Algebraic Topology. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. Adams on the maximal number of linearly independent vector fields on cohomllogy n-dimensional sphere is stated but not proved.
There’s a problem loading this menu right now. Hugo Mass marked it as to-read Feb 25, The text includes over exercises, and gives the background necessary for the modern developments in gauge theory and geometry in four cohomolgy, but it also serves as an introductory course in algebraic topology.
Anand Joshi rated it it was amazing Jan cohomoolgy, Topology, Geometry, and Gauge Fields: Good question but unfortunately is left unanswered by the author. It will be invaluable to anyone who wishes to know about cohomology, curvature, and their applications. The text includes well over exercises, and gives the background necessary for the modern De Rham cohomology is the cohomology of differential forms.
If the book were rewritten to include at least twice the level of detail that it currently has, it could possibly be successful.

From Calculus to Cohomology: de Rham Cohomology and Characteristic Classes
I recommend the book as an excellent first reading about curvature, cohomology and algebraic topology to anyone interested in these themes from students to active researchers, and especially to those who deliver lectures concerning the mentioned fields. A fairly long list of exercises is given in the back of the book, and the reader should work most of these in order to be able to understand the results in the book.
